Erie Canalway Trail

Long Trail with some issues along the road

February, 2018 by sanmartm

Last summer, a group of 10 friends did the trail from Buffalo to Albany. Before we started the trail in Buffalo, we ride our bikes to Niagara Falls in Canada. Great experience and wonderful ride, except for walking the bike over the border.
The "trail" between Buffalo and Albany has some gaps but in general is ok. There is a small section before Rochester where the trail is in horrible condition. The good thing is that there are good hotels in Albany, Buffalo, Syracuse and Rochester (Marriott) so you can accomodate your trip to stay in a nice hotel after a long ride. There is only one stop where you have to sleep in a run-down motel, but, hey! No trip is perfect!

Albany County Rail Trail

Favorite trail

November, 2017 by gigischolz

I love this trail and ride it 3 - 4 times a week. The western section from Slingerlands to Voorheesville is not yet paved, but is rideable with a fitness or mountain bike.

There is a parking lot on South Pearl street, the eastern end of the trail. There are bike tools and a pump located at this lot, as well as CDPHP rental bikes.

Albany County Rail Trail

A green oasis

October, 2017 by akitalady

I and my dog usually turn left on the trail out of Delmar, towards the South Pearl trail head. Within a few minutes, you feel as if you are in the middle of the forest - it's peaceful, with lots of wildflowers and wildlife. I regularly see deer, turkeys, and once, a bald eagle.

I feel fortunate to live so close to this wonderful resource, and greatly appreciate the time and resources that went into creating it.

Ballston Veterans Bike Path

Nice trail with occassional wildlife sightings and lots of rabbits

October, 2017 by tjcollins

This is one of my favorite rail trails near me. My husband and I have walked and biked this trail on evenings and weekends to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible.

We enjoy the occassional sightings of deer, groundhogs and snapping turtles. Also, the frequent train that passes by.

However, we have stopped walking here for safety reasons due to a group of dirtbike riders who have no regard for the rule that prohibits the use of motor vehicles on the trail. It saddens me that I cannot walk there anymore.

Zim Smith Trail

Deb, Nanny & 3 Dogs

October, 2017 by sonntagwj

We have walked this trail numerous times and just love it.
Bikers need to either use a bell or announce "On your left" when coming upon walkers/joggers.
Wish there were mile markers from end to end.

Erie Canalway Trail

Not maintained

August, 2017 by arcy6635

When biking from Utica to oriskany this trail hasn't been maintained at all.its to a point where I quit usuing this trail

Fonda, Johnstown & Gloversville Rail Trail (FJ & G Rail Trail)

Nice Trail

August, 2017 by denisonhwc

This is a very nice paved asphalt trail. There is a little more ascent going North (johnstown to Gloversville). The only drawback is the amount of street crossings. Still, well worth doing!

Spring Run Trail

Nice and Easy

July, 2017 by dscelsi

This is a lovely short trail - it's one mile in one direction. It's flat, paved and runs through wooded areas and over wetlands and streams. There are lots of wildflowers along the walk, you can hear frogs croaking, birds chirping, and rabbits running here and there. It is a very pleasant easy walk.

Champlain Canalway Trail: Saratoga

Mostly Grass but a nice walk into history

June, 2017 by flmark

This path is an easy walk, but would be annoying by bike. I am writing this review after realizing nobody else had commented and I managed to find myself on this path by chance. The Saratoga Battlefield Park has a few paths where a lawn mower is the only thing that keeps the path active. I followed one of these paths down to the bottom of ‘The Great Redoubt’. Immediately across from the site of General Fraser’s death, a path leads to a small bridge, which crosses the remnants of the canal. I walked to the southern end, which is at the sign for the entrance to the battlefield, maybe a half mile. It was an enjoyable little side trip, as part of the rest of my battlefield walks.

I have biked on several hundred miles of trails here at traillink. This ranks near the bottom for biking, as the amount of crushed stone is far exceeded by the grass content. However, if you want to combine a bit of US history with a pleasant walk along this old canal, I would recommend a battlefield hike that incorporates this trail which can be reached from the last stop on the car tour of the park. So, one star for biking, four stars for walking...leads me to give it two stars overall. I don't mountain bike, but I would imagine it would probably most of those folks happy.

Zim Smith Trail

Watch for Construction

June, 2017 by amer_tl

I was there yesterday and entered the trail in Round Lake near Leah's Bake Shop. We rode north for a little bit but found the trail was closed for construction. Not being familiar with the roads in the area, I am not sure how much of it was closed but it was after the highway overpass.

It is a beautiful ride with lots of nice places to stop for refreshments. The Village of Round Lake is lovely.

Erie Canalway Trail

Fairport to W Henrietta Rd Rochester

June, 2017 by ajw

We parked at Lock 32, and rode west to Henrietta Rd (we were going to Genesee Valley Park, but trail closed at Henrietta Rd for bridge construction). Then turned around and went east to Fairport. 26miles roundtrip. Trail is paved, flat, and in good condition for most of the way. Since it is along a canal, it is open with little shade. Tough on a windy day. There was a portapotty at Lock 32, but no other restrooms or water that we saw.
